What was her husband hiding in the jungles of Mexico?

Rocked by her husband’s tragic death, Kendall Jackson strives to put her life back together. But Ryder, her nineteen-year-old stepson, is bitter and wants nothing to do with her. And she can’t keep the grief at bay. Sometimes, it’s so strong, she wonders if life is worth living.

A call from a cave diver in Mexico gives her hope of mending the relationship with her stepson. Before his death, her husband arranged a diving expedition as a birthday gift for his son. Kendall persuades Ryder to honor his father’s last wish.

From the campus of Western Maryland College to the woods of Camp David and the caves of the Yucatán, Kendall and Ryder take a journey to discover what her husband worked so hard to hide, and to protect his treasured secrets from falling into the wrong hands. The choices they make will decide their fate and the future of others. Will they risk everything for the truth?

 
 A Deep Thing by A.K. Smith

A Deep ThingHe was gone and all Kendall had were the memories of one of the finest men she had ever known, her best friend, her safe place from the storm of life. Tim died in a freak diving accident and with him went much of Kendall’s will to live until a call came from Mexico. That call would present Kendall with a challenge and a reason to live again, as she discovers there was so much about her husband he had kept hidden. He had planned a diving expedition that Kendall would now use to hopefully repair the relationship between herself and her estranged stepson. Little did she know she would find herself in fear for her life from danger and in fear for her heart from love.

Who was the man she knew as her husband? What secrets did he keep from her? What message did he try to leave her when he was gone? The mystery deepens as Kendall becomes a guest to a secret government agency, but how does it relate to the cenotes in Mexico? As Kendall and Ryder put their lives in the hands of the cenote guide, Scout, she finds she is also placing her heart in his hands, another gift from beyond from Tim or Fate smiling down on a woman trapped in a quagmire of secrets?

A.K. Smith’s A DEEP THING colors the blues of the tropical waters in richness, while the darkness of uncovered mysteries are veiled in ominous shadows. Visualize the deadly beauty of the depths of the sea, hear the sounds of the water and experience the terror of the unknown through Kendall’s eyes as one once broken woman finds her inner strength again and awakens to a world she never knew existed. Filled with suspense, the feeling of not knowing where to turn and the chaos it took to bring a lonely woman back to life, while seeing a future that is filled with joy.
I received an ARC edition from A.K. Smith in exchange for my honest review.
